LONDON, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- By 2021, the abdominal surgical robot device market is forecasted to reach $10.5 billion, according to WinterGreen Research. The Abdominal Surgical Robots Market report highlights the following
· Percentage of hospitals with surgical robots to reach 100% in five years
· Robots used for first time in eye surgeries
· Robots to conduct delicate surgeries in development
100% hospital will offer robotic surgery by 2021
- Within five years, the percentage of U.S. hospitals using surgical robots will increase from 21% to 100% as surgeons increasingly demand to work in facilities with robotic surgical equipment.
"Abdominal robotic surgical approaches complement existing open surgery techniques. Soon, all surgery will be undertaken with at least some aspects of robotic surgery replacing or complementing open surgery." said Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research report.
- Although surgical robots have been in use for about a decade, they hadn't been used on such delicate surgeries before.
- In September 2016, the first eye surgery was performed at Oxford University and more patients have since undergone similar procedures.
Robots to conduct delicate surgeries in development
- Cambridge Consultants is working on a prototype robot called Axsis that works on areas as small as 110 microns across.
- The only company with a measurable market share is Intuitive Surgical, and it is reaching market saturation.
- As the market grows rapidly, several vendors with specialized products have entered the market. To compete with Intuitive Surgical, they must compete with lower costs and bedside units.
